    If the dems didn't hound Palin out of office she would have served out her term in relative obscurity. As it turned out, she got mad, became a "national organizer" (as opposed to a "community organizer") who gets wild crowds at rallys and has been a major pain for the dems ever since. The Palin-backed candidates have always won, knocking-off incumbents as well as unknowns. Just wait till November..."she can see November from her house..."

    So who came out ahead, the dems who chased Palin out of office, or Palin, who makes $millions and is a political kingmaker (or queenmaker for Nikki Haley in SC).


    I think she owes the dems a 'thank you' card at very least.

    Ask her Republican opponents who will rip her a new one if she tries to run for President in 2012.

    I see your general point, but your preface is all wrong. Sarah Palin will do nothing in "obscurity" for years to come, maybe never again.

    If she had stayed in office, she would have been subject to continued legal harrassment and an opponent would have been raised up against her by the Hollywood-DC axis of Evil.

    She came out ahead only in the sense that she took that game away from her haters

    She lost credibility as a future candiate, I think, but I'm not sure she really wanted to be one. If she didn't, then yes, she won soundly.

    Democrats "ran Palin out of office"?

    Wow.

    That's the nicest way of saying "fucking quitter" I have ever seen.

    Who won by Palin quitting? Her bank account, but that was the plan all along.

    While ridiculed, reviled, and resented by the Democrat Party establishment, as well as some among the ruling Republican Party ranks, Sarah Palin has withstood all attacks and risen to the highest levels of political power playing on the national stage. Whether it be calling out President Obama on his ever increasing list of political gaffes, or raising money for conservative political candidates throughout the country, Sarah Palin has defied those who would see her reduced to a political caricature, garnering admiration, money, and influence.

    Totally agree. IMHO she is not a viable presidential candidate, the dems are the only ones who want her to run. Then again, Huckabee is leading in the Iowa polls. The problem is that the GOP doesn't have a 'no brainer' candidate. Its Huck, or Newt, or Mitt, etc.

    I hope someone like NJ's Christie gets the nod and actually knows how to fix the country.
